We consider a new model of an Evaluator Prover who receives input values from parties P_1, ..., P_n, performs a computation on these values and publishes the result together with a ZKP of its correctness. The efficiency is achieved by working directly with input numbers rather than at the bit/circuit level. It achieves a hundred-fold efficiency improvement over methods employing homomorphic encryptions.
Classical ZKPs can be made a special case as n =0. Applications include practical secure and secrecy preserving auctions. Presentation will be self contained.
Joint work with Rocco Servidio and Chris Thorpe.
